About Me

My photo
Hi, my name is Terri. I started crafting at an early age when my grandmothers taught me how to crochet and embroider on dish towels. Over the years I've tried many other crafting mediums, and have found my favorite in rubber stamping. My wonderful guy (Craig) supports me in everything I do........I'm very blessed!! I love learning new things and hopefully will inspire others to step out of their comfort zone and try a few new things. Thanks so much for stopping by....have a wonderful day!

Tuesday Throwdown Chalenge 447

Welcome to Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 447, our last challenge of 2019.  I really appreciate you stopping by!  This week's challenge is an Anything Goes Challenge, and I chose to use up lots of scrap items from my large stash!!  The designer paper was a gift from a very special friend and I highlighted some of the flowers with Spectrum Noir sparkle marker.  The sentiment is one of my favorites from my go to box (sorry - don't remember who it is from).  And the ribbon is from my ribbon stash that I thought brought out the darker colors in the designer paper.    I hope you will visit Challenge 447 and check out the great inspiration from the other design team members.  It has been a great year and I hope you will continue to follow us in 2020.  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all!
